Tips for living a positive life

Hello everyone,

I woke up and decided to check some youtube videos. I love researching onĀ Positivity! I know that there is so many people who don’t believe in living a positive life. But I am willing to challenge you. ImplementĀ these things life for a month, and let me know how it goes.

1. When you wake up write at least 10 things you are grateful. (big or small)

2. Remember the law of attraction. When you have a bad thought change it! Think of something else.

3. Love yourself. Write down at least three things you love about yourself.

4. Write a letter to yourself at the end of each week mentioning all the things you are proud of, and plans for the coming weeks. At the end of the month read them all. You’ll be surprised.

5. Look at yourself in the mirror before heading out. Don’t focus on body image. Instead focus on your eyes. Say your favorite positive affirmation while looking directly into them.

6. Write in sticky notes and place them in different, random places to cheer you up.

7. Set your phone with reminders like “smile” “you are beautiful” “keep going gorgeous” when you think you will need them the most.

8. Do random acts of kindness

9. Clean your surrounding space.

10. Tell people you love them.

11. Smile at strangers

12. Fake it until you make it.

13. Listen to motivational music.

14. jump, jump, jump, and smile. (I know it sounds silly but do it)

15. Before you go to bed, remind yourself again for the things you are grateful. And Smile going to bed.

 

I hope you guys can participate in this challenge and see for yourself how your life can change. Remember don’t give up. Actually give these things a try for a month. Let me know how things are going.

Big Dreams

It is crazy to think your wildest dreams can come true. But guess what? They can! I don’t know what happens to some of us that we stop having hope. But propose a challenge. Believe that you can accomplish what you set your mind to. It is unbelievable how inspired and determined you can become after thinking this way.

I always want to be involved with fashion somehow, and I have the opportunity to do so with my own Chloe and Isabel Boutique. I love the fact that I feel in control of what I do. Creativity runs wild, when it comes to running my own business. Earlier this month I did a mini photo shoot and It felt great. That was just one wild dream come true, and it happened because I said “why not?”.

Yesterday I had the great pleasure of meeting one of the most amazing ladies ever. She was a very dedicated nurse who retired at age 71 because she wanted to make sure the person replacing her was the absolute best. She was loved by all her patients. As a nurse in the oncology department, she started Christmas parties for her sick patients and her parents. Now it is a tradition that every year is done at that hospital. She mentioned to me that you don’t only treat the patient, you treat the whole family. How amazing of her to do so, when it is so incredibly hard to comfort a family with a sick child. From experience I can say these people like the nurse I and many in the giving professions must want to be able to help. From the bottom of their heart their dream must be big. Big dreams of being able to make a difference in society. Dream big, and spark the light of someone after you. The job is not done until it is done right, so there should be no regrets. Life is filled with possibilities and we must remember to make giving one of them.

It sounds crazy to think theres people who bake for their neighbors every week, and knits clothes for underprivileged newborns after a stroke, but the nurse I met did. She kept saying she had a wonderful life, and partly was because she had big dreams and she made them happen. Helping others is what kept her going, and that made her utterly happy.

 

Whatever it is that you want to do, make sure it is big. Make sure that you aim high. So when you look back you know you tried; you left a footprint in this world that will be remembered.

 

Have Hope Always,

Maribel
